Cutaneous deciduosis: a report of two cases of an unusual pseudomalignancy
Journal of Cutaneous Pathology, 07/13/2012
Natale KE et al. – The authors describe two cases of cutaneous deciduosis that presented in the post–partum period, but biopsies were not performed until a much later date. The first lesion arose on the perineum of a 31–year–old female after vaginal delivery, but a biopsy was not performed until 6 years after presentation. The second lesion grew in a cesarean section scar of a 26–year–old female with a history of ovarian adnexal endometriosis. Clinically described as a persistent post–operative hematoma, the lesion throbbed in synchrony with her menstrual cycles; a biopsy was also performed 6 years after presentation.
